Intended for the staff of police departments, the handbook supplements the other materials of the Managing Patrol Operations (MPO) training workshops, focusing on the management of the patrol function in municipal police departments. The handbook introduces the purpose, activities, rationale, development, and logic of the MPO training program. One chapter offers suggestions for preparing for the delivery of the program in local departments, while another presents instructions and guidelines to be followed in the actual delivery. For each of the 15 workshop sessions, the handbook presents a summary explanation of objectives, time requirements, audiovisual equipment needs, MPO resource package references, methods of presentation, room arrangements, sequence of session activities, and a presentation outline for use by the instructor. An appendix lists various diagrams of how space used in the training is to be arranged. Sample evaluation forms, which can be used at the conclusion of each training day, are provided to assess the effectiveness of the event. The concluding portion contains a detailed description of the Criminal Justice Research Utilization Program and a description of current efforts to test, in three police departments, the MPO program as a management improvement system.

This practical manual, designed for use in a workshop for police supervisors, covers patrol management theory, the manager's role, resource allocation, crime analysis, and patrol strategies. The manual contains a detailed analysis and bibliography of each of the topics discussed in the workshop participant's handbook. Patrol operations differ from many other management problems because of the unpredictable nature of crime and the shifting nature of calls for service. The political and community pressures affecting a police patrol manager are discussed. An appendix to this section provides an outlined guide for program implementation planning. The portion on resource allocation discusses equal shift staffing, identifying workload demands, equal geographic coverage, proportional need coverage, and developing a model to identify basic calls for service.

Distributed service networks encompass various facilities with which we have daily contact. In the public sector they include, for instance, ambulance, fire, and police services; in the business sector they include maintenance and repair services, road services, courier services, and the like. Policy making problems in distributed service networks can be clearly classified into a number of hierarchical levels. The levels are distinguished by the time horizon of the problem, by the amount of cost involved in the implementation of a solution, and by the political implications of the solution. This top-down classification is typical of what is known as the "systems approach," advocating that the direction of the analysis of complex systems should be from the whole to the details. The top-down classification consists of the following categories of policies: 1. Zoning: How should a network be partitioned into subzones? 2. Station location: Where should service stations or service units be located? 3. Resource allocation: What amount of resources should be allocated to the stations? vii viii Preface 4. Dispatching, routing, and repositioning: What is the optimal dis patching policy, what are the optimal routes for nonbusy units, and under what circumstances is it worthwhile to reposition a certain idle unit? A top-down approach implies that each of the problems is solved separately; however, the solution of a higher-level problem sets constraints on problems at lower levels.
